Starkey - Orbits

Dubstep roughneck turned space-bass scientist
Starkey - Orbits

The assignment of dubstep roughneck turned space-bass scientist continues. Following the ‘Space Traitor’ brief, Starkey uses the open galaxies to express vulnerability and hear-me-roar ire, where the completely wonky ‘GU Star Part 2’ has a zero gravity panic attack, and ‘And Then God Built The Cosmos’ fires at will. Punctuating with his pseudo-operatic digitalism makes more sense than ever. Even with the mediaeval visit of ‘Crashing Sphere’. PJ Geissinger boosts his refinement, despite not being a slave to technicality, with no surrendering of dancefloor rawness. While you feel he still hasn’t found what he’s looking for, there’s much to be said for the thrill of the chase making science fiction believable.

8/10
